  • Short Videos: If you’re able to keep your content to 30 seconds or shorter, you’re already ahead of the game. Short videos capitalize on the quick-scrolling nature of today’s users.
  • Interactive Video: With video already being the most engaging form of content you could create, try taking it a step further by including Q&As, polls, and other features that social media platforms include.
  • Live Videos: Have an update you want to share with customers? Go live! Live video notifies everyone when you start it and gives your content a personal touch.
  • Captioned Videos: A staggering number of consumers watch video content without sound. Make sure your videos have accurate captions!
  • Product Demo Videos: If you sell a product, make a video with a demo of how it works and the benefits of it. The top three most-watched categories of video are entertainment, product demo, and explainer videos.
  • Shoppable Videos: eCommerce brands all over the internet are catching on to this trend, which allows users to buy products directly from a video they’re watching. The video doesn’t even need to be specifically about the product–as long as it’s featured in it, you can use it to sell!
